Boxer Roy Jones Jr. Knocks Out A Fan In $100,000 Challenge
Boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. knocked out one of his fans, part-time MMA fighter Vyron Phillips, in the second round of a pay-per-view event "Knockout" on Sunday (Mar. 20).
Phillips was selected out of about 1,500 possible contenders via Facebook who wanted the chance to fight Jones Jr.- all for the possibility of winning $100,000. The 33-year-old Phillips did not have any prior experience in the ring, and wrote on his Twitter page before the fight that he believed he and Jones "both are scholars in the sport of Boxing."
The fight clearly didn't last too long and Phillips didn't win big, but Jones had some encouraging words for his opponent after the fight.
"I wouldn’t challenge Michael Jordan in 1-1 for $100K," he said. "That guy has an amazing heart to just try the feat. He went out and challenged the best. That’s a lot of heart."

I will never run away in defeat or from defeat. I accept defeat as I do in victory all these people can talk but Guess what I got in there.
